Florida Matters recently moderated a panel discussion at the St. Petersburg Conference on World Affairs called "Arts Mecca: International Cultural Tourism in the Sunshine City." We talked with experts about how to draw culture-lovers from around the world to the Tampa Bay area.
This week on Florida Matters we'll hear highlights from that conversation.
Our guests include:
Michael Francis, Music Director of the Florida Orchestra
Kristen Shepherd, Director of the Museum of Fine Arts
Susana Weymouth, Executive Director of Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts
Leroy Bridges, Media and Interactive Director at Visit St. Pete/Clearwater
